Storyline Heading
Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe, and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - Like Jordan Peele's previous film Get Out, this is a horror film with some deeper social commentary with the scares, but it's also a far less straightforward and altogether more strange. Fans of Lupita Nyong'o will especially enjoy. Elisabeth Moss only has a smaller supporting role. Language, some bloody violence, and creepy/scary subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Despite an intriguing premise and a single great sequence, Us is a muddled affair that goes off the rails the more Peele tries to expand, explore, and explain his basic concept. It's often said that less is more in horror and, had Peele cut out a lion's share of the exposition in Us, it would have made for a more viscerally satisfying experience.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent This delightfully deranged home invasion-family horror film works because Peele not only knows how to tell his story, he assembled an incredible cast to play two roles. "Us” is another thrilling exploration of the past and oppression this country is still too afraid to bring up.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good .... thoughtfully freaky... More of a straightforward scare-fest than "Get Out,” "Us” is also funnier, deeper and more enigmatic in its own way. What maddens some will enrich others as he continues his one-man quest to bring Americans kicking and screaming toward self-investigation.

NY Post Full Review
Good Audiences who show up expecting a parade of slasher thrills may find their adrenaline expectations underwhelmed. "Us” moves in fits and starts; its pacing isn't that of a standard horror movie. It rarely resorts to cheap scares, but occasionally slows to a crawl.
